a challenge to actually create something inspired by
I had to go back over 20 "likes" before I gave up on Pinterest giving me the source to credit. Every "like" led to the person that had liked it before them. Finally I just googled "shrimp. lemon slices and Italian dry mix" Boom! There it was :)
my creative name for the dish ;)
ingredients: 1 pound of fresh shrimp (or thawed if you have to use frozen)\
1 stick of butter (unsalted)
1 package of Italian dry salad dressing mix
Support the NC seafood industry and buy shrimp that is preferably from NC but definitely the US not Asia!! I grew up watching the shrimp trawlers go up and down the river. You could pull your boat up (when the nets were up!!!!) and buy straight off the boat. There are so few these days :( Okay enough of a digression.
Preheat oven to 350 (F)
Line 13x9 pan or dish with foil.
Cut butter into pats onto pan, place in oven to melt butter
Meanwhile shell and devein your shrimp.
Slice lemons and lay on top of melted butter
Lay 2-3 shrimp on each lemon slice
Sprinkle Italian mix over shrimp ( I may have been a bit heavy handed,
the final product could have been less salty)
Place in oven for 15 minutes
Looking good at 10 minutes
but even better at 15!
While the shrimp were cooking I cook linguine.
I poured the pan drippings into a bowl.
I tossed the linguine in the drippings then thought I needed to improvise :)
ohhh that might be perfect
did I measure...of course not, I'm not into that lol
cracked a bunch of black pepper as an extra too
I served the Italian Shrimp in individual dishes over the linguine
with a garnish of lemon slice
Too much for my personal preference so I plated mine
on a pretty new blue plate I had bought that day.
The Chosen One and I both gave this dish 5 stars,
without the cheese and Parmesan it would have probably gotten a 4
but hey, that's still pretty amazing.
With the cheese and pepper it was .......
